What have you been reading this week?
I booked an extra days holiday on Tuesday, so I’ve only worked a 3 day week this week. It’s been such a nice change of pace. It also helps that I’ve got a week off from the 14th June. That means I have 5 working days to get through before I’m ready to relax. It’s been ages since I had a proper holiday, so I need this. I’ll finally get some proper reading done. Of course, I won’t actually do that but it’s a nice idea.

- BOOKISH POST – May Reading Wrap-Up
I think May was a better reading month than April but I’m still not up to my best. I just started the year out too strong and wiped out too soon. Still, I did read quite a few great reads last month, which is much more important than the number you read. What were the final scores? Read my wrap-up to find out.
- BOOKISH POST – Spell the Month in Book Titles: May
I thought that I’d be safe with May because it’s only 3 letters long but, I’ll be honest, there was a moment when I wasn’t sure I’d make it. That last book had me struggling. I had to spend a lot of Monday finishing it off. In the end I managed to get all 3 letters crossed off. Yes, even that tricky “y”. How did I do it? Check out my post to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW – Murder is Easy by Agatha Christie
Even though I’m getting through quite a few Agatha Christie books at the moment, it feels as though I’ve barely made a dent in her bibliography. I’m trying to read as many as I possibly can before October, which is the month that I started this Agatha session. It’s a lot of books that I’ve read before but there are some that I’ve never read before. Like this one. Would it be worth the wait? Find out why by giving my review a quick read.
- TBT REVIEW – The Emperor’s New Groove (2000)
I know that this is pretty popular on the internet and social media but I’d never actually seen it before. It came out after the time that I had stopped watching new Disney animated films. I guess that I thought I was too cool (as if!) for that. Just like Shrek this is a film that has gained a status way beyond anything that you could have imagined when it came out. After my FYP seemed to suddenly quite a few TikToks using movie quotes, I decided it was finally time to check it out. If you’re feeling nostalgic, head over to my review.
- You by Austin Grossman
My final book of the month and one that has been on my shelves since 2015. I bought it thinking it would be a really interesting read but it never happened. And, to be honest, it nearly didn’t happen again. I was sure that I was never going to finish this book but I persevered. Not my favourite reading moment this year but I got it done.
- Nemesis by Agatha Chrisite
My first Christie of the month and another audiobook to get me through the work week. I’ve not read much Miss Marple in the last few months, so I figured it was worth getting some crossed off the list. Why not start with her
- The Employees: A Workplace Novel of the 22nd Century by Olga Ravn
This book made it to the Booker International shortlist
I’ve bought quite a few books lately. I went a bit mad over the bank holiday. So mad that I can’t be bothered to write them all out here. Check them out on my Instagram soon.
- 24– I’m watching the seasons in a random order but it’s a lot of fun going back. Jack Bauer may enjoy torturing a bit too much but he looks so beautiful doing it. This show is still insane but it’s so good to watch,
